    So I couldn't help myself and fulfilled another dream today and got myself a baby radiated. Was temp sexed for male, and was born may 5th of this year.

    I haven't decided on a name yet. My Aldabra is Albus Dumbletort, so was thinking fawkes ( fox ) which is the Phoenix which Albus Dumbledore has in the books.
    Or possibly just the name 8. I kinda like it.
    I'm sure something will come to me as I get to know the little guy better.

    He will come out before long. Has been very shy, but also 930pm here.

    I can't help but keep calling him fawkes.
    I like my Harry Potter theme and he will be bright and radiant like the Phoenix so I'm pretty sure fawkes it is!

    Yes, and Albus is only 5 months older. When they are all grown up they will still have a huge size difference too.

    And yes I will be keeping him outside when he's bigger.
